The Antichrist: The tenth, eleventh, and twelfth messages have been added to this series from 2011.
An Ungodly Passion for The Passion, 2/22/2004
Christians in the pew are being seduced by their pastors and high-profile Christian leaders into supporting a movie which is nothing less than a giant ecumenical coup by the devil and his handmaiden, the Vatican.
The Salvific Suffering Heresy of The Passion, 2/29/2004
In addition to all the other harm that it does to the cause of Christ and all the other good that it does for the cause of Rome, The Passion movie also advances the Roman Catholic heresy of salvific suffering--the necessity of a sum total of suffering to purchase salvation.
The Other Side of Child Rearing, 8/14/2005
We cannot stress enough the importance of children being taught to honor and obey their parents. We cannot stress enough the obligation of children to care for their parents in their old age. This is a holy duty. But we also cannot stress enough the importance of parents honoring each other in their children's sight. The husband must nurture and cherish his wife even as the wife submits to her husband's authority and both of them obey God. We cannot stress enough the importance of both parents loving and caring for their children, ministering to them, and setting an example of self-sacrifice for them.
A Call to Build with Ready Hearts and Willing Hands, 1/29/2006
Jesus promised that He would build His Church and the gates of hell would not prevail against it. The foundation of Christ's Church is permanently laid and immovable. But the building of the Church herself must go on with each generation. God is not glorified nor pleased with half-hearted work performed by people who consider themselves forced labor--conscripts working on a useless project!
Benny Hinn's Doctrines of Devils, 2/1/2006
In this Heart of the Matter program, Pastor Ralph Ovadal and Pastor Ian Brown discuss Benny Hinn's doctrines of devils.
The Essential Pursuit of Holiness, 2/5/2006
We live in a sin-wrecked world filled with immorality and brutality, depravity and destruction, sorrow and sin, despair and death. How badly we need the churches of Christ to be places of holiness and healing, righteousness and knowledge, peace and joy.
No Cross. No Gospel. No Love. 2/19/2006
Today the suffering of the sinner is the focus of many preachers rather than the suffering of the Saviour who died for the sinner! Sinners must be shown the bloody, gory cross. The Lord's people must be reminded of it often as well, lest we forget that Christ is the Church's bloody bridegroom.
Striving Together for the Faith of the Gospel, 3/26/2006
What Paul instructed the Philippians in this epistle is also an instruction to each citizen of every church for all time. These words of the apostle have been the fervent prayer of every true shepherd of Jesus Christ's Church from Paul to the present day.
The Doctrine of Repentance, 4/23/2006
True repentance toward God is repentance from sin itself, not just certain sin because that sin is unfashionable, unprofitable, uncomfortable, or even unconscionable.
Why Seek Ye the Living among the Dead? 4/30/2006
Christ is not to be found in carnal things and worldly pleasures, including worldly worship and foolish religious devices. Many today crave dross instead of silver. Many turn to dead things instead of the living Christ. Filling dead churches with spiritually dead men only speeds the process of decay. Christ is not in those churches. Why seek ye the living among the dead?
Weeping over Zion, 6/18/2006
The Church must go forward. The Church must be militant. The Church must be triumphant. The chaste bride must be kept chaste.
A Heart for God's Cause, 8/20/2006
It is a great blessing to be a man after God's own heart, and we should each strive to be such a man. This means so much more than being a good, moral man. Today, I want to warn those Christians who think it somehow pleases God that they live a moral life but will not take up God's cause. That is not living as a man after God's own heart. I pity the Christian who lives as a sweet moralist with no burning zeal for the honor and glory of God.

So Great a Cloud of Witnesses, 4/30/2017
To download a sermon: Right click on Download File, and then choose Save As (Save target as, Save link as, etc.).
Important: SermonAudio tags will appear on some of the messages found on this web site. We are not in any way affiliated with SermonAudio! Please read the following explanation.
Those who listen to archived sermons or Heart of the Matter programs on this web site will notice that, currently, when they download some of those sermons and HOM programs that a SermonAudio logo appears. This is because Pilgrims Covenant Church messages were for a number of years posted at SermonAudio. But due to the increasingly deep compromise of SermonAudio in posting sermons from ministers unfaithful either in doctrine or practice or both, and also on account of the many corrupt conferences advertised on SermonAudio, we withdrew from SermonAudio. However, I did not realize when posting our sermons and programs on that site on a page for which we paid that the management was tagging our MP3 files with the logo of SermonAudio. We are working to remove the SermonAudio logo from all of the sermons and programs posted on this site which were previously posted at SermonAudio. However, this takes much time; so we felt it important to post this explanation and also this warning concerning SermonAudio, a web site with many sound ministers, but also many which are corrupting the Lord's blood-bought church.
